Wednesday, October 18, 2017

When you're busy managing all the tasks in your business, the rest of your life can kind of pass you by! You just cannot find the time to get a handle on any of the other essential things in life, such as taking care of yourself appropriately, seeing your family or taking the appropriate time to simply relax. That lifestyle can't be sustained forever, and working and living like for too long can lead to extreme burnout that's hard to recuperate from. 


Why Your Work/Life Balance Is So Crucial

Thursday, July 13, 2017

After starting your own business you may have faced a rather unexpected extra pressure that didn't exist in rather the very same way you were used. As you begin to understand the scale and breadth of the tasks associated with your goals, this pressure can become overwhelming sometimes. You may be wondering how you're getting everything done? Ways to advance? It can feel like you're getting no place quick and often times this leads to working longer hours, without any time to unwind on nights or weekends. Furthermore, technology has provided a completely connected state, where it's more difficult to 'leave work' and as a result, you regularly feel that you need to justify any downtime. It's a tiring and unsustainable way of living and accomplishing a balance in between work and the rest of your life becomes significantly difficult. That, obviously, has unfavorable ripple effects to your business, as you can not run at your finest, can not serve your customers properly, will likely lose profit, and aren't able to develop the business that you've constantly imagined. But exactly what can you do to enhance your work/life balance in this scenario? 


Why Efficiency Is Absolutely Essential In Business

Thursday, June 29, 2017

Most business owners realize the importance of being efficient and increasing their productivity, but many have quite a ways to go before they can truly feel their business is operating efficiently. Oftentimes, this progress is blocked by the common entrepreneurial mindset that the business owner is the most appropriate person to take on each and every role. Of course, this creates a giant and overwhelming to-do list, often incorporating many background recurring tasks such as bookkeeping, marketing, social media, administration, website updates and more. Dealing with these tasks rather than the core business operations leads to a huge amount of wasted time, a loss of momentum, a bottleneck to productivity, lost opportunities to serve customers, stunted business growth and an overall reduction in potential income. Essentially, it means you need to spend longer at work to achieve the same outcome, regularly working unnecessarily long hours to make sure you get 'almost' everything done.
